    Well, this is as close to beer goggles as I think anyone can come - looks nice in that light!

    Nice work!

    The design has grown on me just a tiny bit, but I still have issues with it. More the functionality of the back then anything.

    Front bumper still looks like the lower part got stung by a bee and is swollen up. That effect is even larger when you shoot with a shorter focal length lens. You need to shoot these with a long lens (150-200mm on a full frame IMO)

    My two cents worth is I love the D5 and am dying for one, and am amazed that a lens can make that much difference in a picture. How do you attach an EF135mm f/2.0L lens on my phone? LOL!!!

    Nice pics. I think the D5 looks nice from that angle.

    Sorry, looked at one at the dealer yesterday. Had no issue driving my LR4 off the lot. Honestly, driving through the lot, I could not distinguish a Discovery, Freelander or Range Rover Sport from the font end. They are basically the same, but once you get that side/rear shot, you know what you got. Disco has ugly butt syndrome

    did your lr4 leak all of its oil on the way off the dealer =)....

    To me the Lr4 is dated and has seen its time. It is terrible on fuel, interior tech is very dated. 2nd row is way cramped. It was time for a refresh.
